Great little pocket camera. 5Mpixels produce great shots in good lighting conditions, particularly for landscapes. It can be frustrating at times as it takes a good second to focus and take the shot. If you're not used to the camera it's quite easy to miss shots as the shutter doesn't always release when you think it has!

Extremely simple to use. Perfect for holidays and maybe progressing a bit further, but that was about 4 years ago(2002).

Well after reading those other reviews it would be enough to put you off..... but I was very impressed with the qualities of this little camera and taking pics in the dark depends on what flash and settings you have!! Overall though being artistic...it gives you plenty of experimental functions and settings... and definately worth the buy!!!
